The festive season is fast approaching and with it comes the desire to think of unique and wonderful gift ideas for your family. Whether you are purchasing presents for your children, parents or grandparents, why not give the gift of gorgeous, woollen country wear? Read on for our fashion gift ideas, which are guaranteed to give you all the inspiration needed to bring delight to your nearest and dearest on Christmas morning.
A gift for him
Our Multi-Colour Harris Tweed Patchwork Jumper (£99.95) is the perfect gift for the much-loved man in your life. Though it is chunky, made from 100% British Wool and is deliciously cosy, our jumper is smart enough to wear out to dinner. This timeless multi-colour knit looks good on any man, no matter their age.
A gift for her
If the lovely lady in your life likes being warm in classic country wear, you can’t go wrong with a luxurious 100% cashmere infinity scarf or cowl. At Glencroft, we have three types of cashmere scarves or cowls, all manufactured in Yorkshire from responsibly sourced cashmere and priced at £69.95.
A gift for grandad
Now, all discerning men adore a flat cap. At least, they do where we come from – the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales! If your grandad shares a similar style, he will love our British Harris Tweed Flat Caps. Choose from Harris Tweed, Teflon coated wool tweed, and a number of both traditional and contemporary styles. Available from £29.95-£39.95.
A gift for grandma
Grandmas and mittens go back decades – whether they are knitting some for a new arrival or are wrapped up in a pair themselves. Yours will stay extra snug in our woollen mittens, which are made from genuine sheepskin. Pick up a pair for £34.95-£39.95.
A gift for babies
Is there anything sweeter than a bonny baby in a pair of booties? We think not! Our real sheepskin (£14.95) and sheepskin & tweed pairs (£19.95) are just adorable and will protect those tiny toes from the harsh winter chill. Shop our baby booties here.
A gift for children
Your children won’t complain of being too itchy or hot in one of our jumpers (£39.95). They are made from 100% British Wool and are breathable but still wonderfully warm. The fun sheep and tractor designs will have them reaching for it every time, too!
A gift for friends
If you are looking for an alternative to hampers and fizzy wine, why not gift one of our luxurious sheepskin rugs, starting from £59.95? Dinner parties will be at their home from now on!
A gift for local folk
Trying to buy for someone with a love of the Yorkshire Dales and walking? We have a limited quantity of our Three Peaks lambswool scarves in stock, with all profits going to the Three Peaks Project which looks after our neighbouring mountains of Ingleborough, Penyghent and Whernside, read more about it here.
A family business for over 30 years
Glencroft was established in 1987 by Richard and Justina Sexton. Over 30 years later and Richard still hand trims all our sheepskin rugs while son Edward is now in the business. We continue to responsibly produce all our products in the UK or mainland Europe using local and natural materials. Your order is sent out direct from our converted cow-barn warehouse in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
By shopping for your extra-special gifts at Glencroft, not only are you choosing to support a family business this Christmas, but you are helping other British suppliers too, from wool producers and mills to tanneries and specialist craftspeople. So a huge thank you is in order!
